Intraocular lens implantation is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for cataract patients. Optometrists need to realize the importance of identifying the perspective IOL patient, be knowledgable about the various types of IOL's used, know the various complications which may arise due to the surgery itself, IOL design, or intolerance of the lens by the patient, and supply adequate and professional management in the pre and post-operative care of the IOL patient. It is hoped that this paper will provide the Optometrist with the necessary information required to serve this growing patient population with the optimum in professional eye care.
